The re-potty training is going great. Senor is doing well and we're all very proud of him. It helps that he poops on schedule, so I just make sure we're home for that. We're still working on him reminding himself to go. That's been the hardest part. We've been able to do simple errands without accidents, so that's great. We still use a diaper for night time, but he's been waking up dry too. It's great not having to fight him all day long about using the potty. We're still using rewards and bribes, but for only when he reminds himself to go. 

He had a bit of a bloody nose the other night, so Deb pulled out her nose clips for fun. Years ago she had a nose bleed that ended her up in the ER and they awarded her with those, so she keeps them around just in case. Vance has seen them used on Ryan (she gets nose bleeds too) so he felt he needed them.

Baby girl is doing great also. Here she is yesterday at the pool. She slept through the whole thing. She's been sleeping really well at night. Her last feeding is somewhere between 9:00 and 10:00 and wakes up only once, usually around 3:00 or 3:30. She just laughed (I'm calling it the first official time) 30 minutes ago while sitting in her swing. Her tear duct is giving her problems again, so we're back to putting in her eye stuff multiple times per day.

I heard that today is Paint Buying Day, so I have to get my colors picked out. Justin remembered that all of our painting stuff is packed, so we'll have to buy new brushes, rollers, and drop cloths also. We close tomorrow morning and Justin will start painting tomorrow night. That's what our weekend will be about. Painting and getting ready for Tuesday. That's when The Movers arrive. I'm excited to see our stuff again. I'm also excited to go furniture shopping and pick out new family room furniture. Yea! I'm sure Justin is equally excited about picking out a new TV. What's going on is that we have a loft upstairs which we decided to put our old furniture, TV, and entertainment center there. So, the family room downstairs will be empty until we find new stuff. 

Must run and get dressed while Vaughn is napping.

  1. That picture of Vance is hilarious. It is nice that BG is only waking up once in the middle of the night, but don't you find that 3:00 or 3:30 feeding just horrible. That is about the time Samuel wakes up and it just screws up my whole sleep. I would love for him to sleep later, but I can't get him to stay up past 7:30 every night. If he went to bed around 8 or 9 then he would probably make it until morning, but he just poops out. Oh well. Have fun painting this weekend.

  2. So glad to hear I'm not the only one awake at that hour!
